Why not just mod the one you have?
I have modded this one slightly and its not like I'm scared to... I had a 335 that was heavily modded. Given that I plan to keep an E9x M3 for a while, I'd like to have one with the factory warranty (mine just expired in August), and have the newer CIC iDrive (mine is the older CCC version), which I think could potentially be a larger problem in the future with [private] resale than most of us '08 owners might think), and given the cold temperatures in winter here, heated seats would be a nice option. I'm very happy with this car, so it honestly hasn't been a decision I'm necessarily worried about. I just remember having suspension on my last car made trading it a little bit more of an issue because of timing/scheduling.
